WHY IT RATES: Intrepid is turning National Travel Agent Day into a month-long celebration as part of an effort to underscore the important part travel agents have played in the company’s growth.—Mia Taylor, TravelPulse Senior Writer.
To celebrate Travel Agent Day, Intrepid Group—the world’s largest B-Corp certified, carbon-neutral travel company—is extending its largest Purpose-Driven Agent Incentive in the Americas until May 31, and has added an “Agent Appreciation Spot” for one lucky registered travel agent on the company’s Nepal FAM trip in November, who will be randomly selected.
Turning National Travel Agent Day into a month-long celebration, the purpose of extending the incentive and adding an additional spot on the Nepal FAM trip is to reiterate the important part travel agents have played in Intrepid’s growth, according to Shayna Zand, head of business development in the Americas.
“The intent of the Purpose-Driven Agent incentive is to celebrate travel agents who are making a difference by selling our style of travel—which benefits travelers and the places they visit—to their clients,” said Zand. “What better way to show our sincere appreciation for travel agents then to give away an ‘Agent Appreciation’ spot on our Nepal trip for simply being a partner who shares our vision of ‘Changing the Way People See the World’?”
To conclude the now four-month incentive campaign, the top 10 agents who have accumulated the most Purpose Points by May 31, and one additional registered agent, will win a free trip to Nepal led by Zand and Intrepid Group’s Co-Founder Geoff Manchester. Agents can earn points by booking clients on one of Intrepid Group’s 2,700 sustainable tours through its brands Intrepid Travel, Peregrine Adventures, and Urban Adventures.
Intrepid’s 10-day Experience Nepal FAM trip, departing November 3, 2019, will take agents on a variety of experiences including hiking stunning landscapes and participating in a cooking class with Seven Women, a social enterprise that has changed the lives of more than 1,000 disadvantaged females in Nepal, supported by Intrepid Group’s not-for-profit, The Intrepid Foundation.
Intrepid is the largest trekking operator in Nepal and the company recently received a World Responsible Tourism Award for its year-long Namaste Nepal campaign, a project that raised more than $750,000 AUD for the country.
“As industry continues to be a huge part of Intrepid’s global success, today and every day we want to show our appreciation for travel agents and the work they do to provide clients with a life-changing travel experience,” said Zand.
